  • The 2012 South Ayrshire Council election took place on 3 May 2012 to elect members of South Ayrshire Council. The election used the eight wards created as a result of the Local Governance (Scotland) Act 2004, with each ward electing three or four Councillors using the single transferable vote system a form of proportional representation, with 30 Councillors being elected.The election saw the Scottish Conservative Party remain the largest party on the Council though they lost 2 seats. The Scottish National Party gained 1 seat and replaced the Scottish Labour Party as the second largest party as the party also increased its vote share at the expense of the other parties. Labour retained its 9 seats an achievement as she had suffered 3 defections during 2007-2012. Independents doubled their numbers to 2 seats.Following the election the Conservative Party formed a minority administration working in a Partnership Agreement with the Labour Party members. Both Independents are also supporting the administration. This replaced the previous Conservative minority administration which existed from 2007-2012. (en)
